Benedict Cumberbatch dished out several interesting details about himself to InterviewMagazine.com. On whether or not he is good at saying no, the Sherlock actor said, “No.” On whether he is a good driver, he replied, “I think I’m a very good driver. Apparently, the cause of road rage — as with most anger — is some kind of superiority complex, which, god knows, cars foster.”

When the interviewer, Thom Yorke, asked him if he would run from trouble, or stick his face in it, Benedict replied, “I think I’ve had very knee-jerk emotional reactions to things, and sometimes I’ve said things without thinking. Being overly emotional clouded my judgment.”

 

When asked if he has reading glasses, Benedict said, “No, but I am shortsighted. I need them for watching movies or concerts. It’s not a hipster affectation; I do have poor eyesight. This is how ridiculous my life is: I’ve had the test for contact lenses, but I haven’t found a half-day where I can go to the optician.”So does Benedict bring his work home with him? The actor replied in the negative, saying, “When I walk through that door, it’s about home. If I didn’t do that, I’d become consumed by one thing only and damage the people who love me. And it would damage the work.”
